Hampi day 1

Hampi with Nandini

After Bangalore I went up to Hampi together with Nandhini where we spent 5 days walking around among ruins and temple monkeys. Hampi was the center of a vast empire until it was destroyed by invading armies 500 years ago. Now an area covering 26 square km's is full of ruins to explore.

A few goats a lining up to inspect a ruin.
We found this very large caterpillar. The book next to it is a standard sized moleskin.
A staircase leading up to a temple on top of the hill in which there was a holy man smoking marijuana and telling us about the snake god.
Nandhini is enjoying the view from the train in the morning as we are arriving at Hospet

There were more small decorations like this than I could point my lens at
